No matter how busy you are, you could spend five minutes: 

  • To answer the telephone
  • To read the morning paper
  • To talk with a neighbor
  • To dispute with the laundryman about a mistake
  • To watch new furniture being unloaded next door
  • To chatter with a salesman • To read a trivial letter
  • Or to write one. 

It takes only five minutes: 

  • To say a prayer for the suffering friend
  • To read a chapter in "The Following of Christ"
  • To stop and think of God's daily gift of mercy
  • To remember the cross
  • To thank our Blessed Mother for her care of us
  • To make an act of faith, hope, and love
  • To whisper an "Our Father" or "Hail Mary" for someone in need
  • To say a decade of the Rosary for the pour souls
  • To visit the little statue or picture on the mantleplace and tell the Savior how much you love Him
  • To make a spiritual communion. 

Which is the better way to spend five minutes?
